Calls to Behead Indonesian Atheist Alexander Aan

As Dan Barker once formulated


Any belief system that threatens you with (physical) violence is morally bankrupt. 


It is 2012 and we take a look at some "democratic" country that allows for "6 religions":  

  • Islam, 
  • Buddhism, 
  • Hinduism, 
  • Catholicism, 
  • Protestantism and 
  • Confucianism. 

Notice please that "lack of belief" is not only considered a "belief" but also (an) illegal (one)!

You already can guess where this is going, can't you?

Don't you dare declare yourself to be an "atheist" (whatever that actually may mean) in that country.


The trouble began when civil servant Alexander Aan posted a message on the Facebook page of Atheist Minang, a group of Indonesians with godless beliefs. It read: “God doesn’t exist.”


In some places it might cost you your head. Apostacy is punishable by death in some regions. We knew that already....

Don't you dare "insult" a nonexisting entity in that country. In some places it might cost you your head. Blasphemy is punishable by death in some regions. We knew that already

However this one is a new kind of nonsense. Suddenly not believing in a god equates to blasphemy. It was new to me that "not X" suddenly equals a "X is *put some insult here*".


To add insult to injury, police then arrested him and now want to press blasphemy charges that could see him locked up for five years.


Doesn't keep the mob from demanding his death for both. Can't you kill someone at least "consistently" for a non-crime instead of using the prescribed punishment for another non-crime instead? Especially when both have the same "super-moral" and "divinely sanctioned" consequences?

Sorry ... it is time for another "Fuck Allah"again...

PS: Where are you going to during your vacations?

I am puzzled again and again, how the same human brain, that can invent the means to transport people to the moon has not overcome the incredible ludicracy of killing people for nothing more than their refusal to share a form of mental illness.    The tragedy is that what is ludicracy is at the same time lethal to the victims.
